For brothers Darren and Ashley Churchill, going to work each day is more than just a job. Their company, JC Engineering, based in Reading, was started 51 years ago by their father John Churchill who is still very active within the business.

“We are still a traditional small family business,” says Darren. “It is very rewarding when we get awarded with more orders from our customers. We have a good team of people here at JC Engineering who take great pride to ensure customer satisfaction.

Two years ago, the company acquired a local competitor, Just Precision Sheet Metal, and it has recently invested in a new LVD Phoenix 3015 4kW fibre laser machine. Along with the new laser, JC also invested in a complete refurbishment of its 10-year-old Easy-Form® press brake, bringing it up to the specification of a new machine with the latest CADMAN® TOUCH-B, intuitive touch-screen control.
